Diceless Backgammon

One LARGE debate point in the planning of IAGO is what games would be included or not. Backgammon is one of those games people have argued against, because of the dice. Well, there has been multiple attempts to create a diceless version of backgammon. One of the more interesting variants, in my opinion is NC-Backgammon (No Chance Backgammon). In this game, players can choose to double a set amount of times in a game. If they don't do this, then they alternate picking a die and using what their opponent picked last. The concept is very interesting. I will leave it to others to decide for themselves. Visit this site for more information on NC-Backgammon:

NC-Backgammon is a game that is officially registered with IAGO:

I am personally interested in having NC-Backgammon as part of the IAGO World Tour.
